Lá na Gaeilge: Irish Language Day
On May 4, the ICC is sponsoring our eighteenth Irish language immersion day, Lá na Gaeilge, at Elms College. It is a unique opportunity for those with an interest in the language – beginners and those with varying levels of competence – to deepen their knowledge and appreciation of this vital component of Irish culture. As well as formal classes, Lá na Gaeilge consists of workshops (céilí dancing, film), and cómhrás (opportunities for conversation and dialog at the learner’s appropriate level). A lecture, The Irish Language and the discourses of colonisation and decolonisation, will be given by Kerron Ó Luain, Villanova FLTA. Lá na Gaeilge concludes in a seisiún with an opportunity for participants to display their musical talents. Registration begins at 8:30 am and the day concludes at about 5:00 pm. The cost is $50 per person, $45 for ICC Patrons, and $15 for college-age and under students. More info and registration form.
